ANTIQUE OLD RAILROAD TRAIN WOOD WALL CABINET ORIGINAL DRY PAINT SQUARE NAILS! Up for sale is this very nice old wall cabinet. It’s aged and worn in all the right Primitive ways! It has one door and lots of shelves inside, with some that are removable. The cabinet was made with square nails as you can see from the closeup pictures. The nails are in the top. It has heavy old Shaker style hinges and hardware with a wooden door pull. We think that this probably dates this cabinet to the 1800’s and perhaps it was an old railroad cabinet. We don’t know the age of this cabinet so you make the call. The door has a big crack in it on the front, and there are some scrapes, nicks, and cracks in the top of it (although you can’t see the top if you hang it on the wall above eye level). The color is a dark drab grey-green color. And the paint has alligator-ed, crackled and patina-ed over time. It makes it very nice and unique looking. Simple, classic but old looking. It’s a railroad cabinet. How do we know? It has 5 old tour/railroad schedules that come with it and there are’rules and regulations’ that appear to be for the Railway Express Agency on the inside of the door. The documents on the inside of the door are very tired, worn and age. Some you can barely read. But the tour/railroad schedules are in great shape and very clear. There are two (4) day tour tickets from July 1st to July 4th, 1950 to Buffalo, NY while the three (5) day tour tickets are to Milwaukee, WI on July 2nd to July 6th, 1947. They both are for the singing group called the Swiss Harmony, which was a male vocal group, and they were traveling from Hudson County to these locations. You can see the train schedules below. Inside the tour tickets, you can see the “tear off” coupons for lunches and dinners. Don’t forget your tickets! The cabinet has some damage on the back where the wood splintered or broke, maybe when somebody took this off the wall or something, we’re not sure. Someone tried to put some newer screws in the back to hold the back on to the cabinet. The back is still loose in some places. There are also some newer smaller shiny nails trying to hold the back on. There are a lot of old round rusty nails in the back also. Who looks at the back anyway? It is a wonderful and one of a kind! The cabinet measures 36.5″ H x 31.5″ W x 11.5″ D at the top and 10.5″ D at the cabinet part. It weighs about 42 lbs. It’s a nice-sized. Cabinet and would be able to be hung on the wall or set on top of a cabinet. We don’t know the age of this item but it looks early to mid 20th century to us. There are nicks, scrapes, small cracks, dings, and worn paint/stains as you can see in the pictures but nothing you wouldn’t expect from an item of this age.
